Escalante River trailhead camping requires an overnight permit. Sign the register and start hiking. Camp spots along river are hiking access ONLY! Float the river pull over and camp, pretty awesome adventure. Many amazing things to see in the area. Can't really say all the cool stuff to do, otherwise there would be no discovery left for you!🤫 But Awesome!!!
Great location in central Utah, enjoy hiking and water activities. Overall very clean.
make sure you go up by posey lake in the woods but also make sure you head to the dino tracks at the end of the BLM roads around there and stop at devils garden along the way
We stayed there for memorial weekend. We had to book a long ways in advance because there are not many established campgrounds in the area! This one is well-maintained, has restrooms, a large group area and is located in one of my favorite places in Utah! It is right next to a lake and a petrified forest, so even hanging out at the campground is fun. It is a little ways off the highway so you do not hear any of that noise. All around it was a great experience, in fact I am headed back again this year.
We took the route of Hurricane Wash to camp under Hamblin Arch. It was about 11 miles each way. The Sneaker Route and the Crack in the Wall are shorter routes and I would absolutely recommend those instead. Camping directly under the arch was gorgeous. We went in late March and the weather was perfect. Room for three tents directly under the arch.
We tried to camp directly at Calf creek falls, but it was very over crowded. The host referred us to a few primitive camping sites that were about 1 mile from the camp ground. They were on the right hand side just off of the road, but you would think you were in the backwoods. It was cold and rainy when we camped but the views and surrounding area were beautiful! It was convenient to head back to Calf creek and hike both upper and lower. If you're in the area and don't mind primitive camping(no facilities or running water) I would highly recommend it. It was worth dodging the large crowds and loud campsites for a quiet spot.
